Cod eggs

Mean survival of Atlantic cod eggs exposed to various spectral wavebands, without photorepair between exposures. Each curve represents the mortality induced by exposure to radiation greater than the cut-off wavelength indicated. Open symbols denote treatments that received UV-A and visible light, or visible light only. Filled symbols denote treatments that received radiation in the UV-B + UV-A visible wavebands.
